Even though GoPro footage is supported in PP for us it is best to convert the original GoPro footage first to a standard fileformat. For us works Proress very good. And after everything is of another fileformat import it into PP.
Though it is strange that the output file is so short...
Its quite understandable when your source is 720x480 and you are exporting to 1920x1080 it looks like garbage.
Do you might want to check the height and width of the Gopro files.
You can do that with medioinfo.
I can understand that the source being 720x480 and trying to export to 1920x1080, but I'm not sure why that would make the text (the title) look like garbage too.
I'll try it differently when I get home, as well as further read the conversations posted above. I'm at work at the moment.
Thanks for all the replies/help!

Besides the possible resolution discrepency, am I understanding the workflow correctly, that you are rendering the video TWICE? You don't have to render the timeline before exporting. Just go direct to AME. But definitely figure out the source format and don't up-res, keep matching settings for best results.

Alright, thanks for the help guys. I re-rendered the sequence again, this time matching the source resolution and the video quality is much better. However, the text for the title and intro is still poop, I have no idea about the other text because the output is still only 16 seconds long. Absolutely no idea what Im doing wrong for the output to only be 16 seconds. Going to try and do some more searches around the internets, unless anyone else has any ideas?
Please try this - do not pre-render the timeline, leave it red. Verify what the current sequence settings are, for instance 720x480 29.97. Go to File > Export > Media to bring up AME. Whatever format you choose, make sure the dimensions match the source. It will display input and output settings, easy to look if there are differences.
At bottom left, choose 'Entire Sequence" rather than "Work Area". Rather than Queue, just hit EXPORT. This ought to work.
I would suggest a test - create a NEW project. Import a sample clip. Drag to "New Item" button at lower right on bin, to create a new timeline sequence that matches the clip. Verify what the sequence settings are. Add a title. Export as described above. Check results.
Jeff, I believe you hit it on the head sir. Its not done rendering yet, but I can already tell it should render the entire sequence, as the yellow bar in the "render area" is filled all the way, something I had not noticed before.
I seriously thank you guys (and gals, maybe?) for your patience with such a noob topic. You all make the world go round.
